"Update. We had a HP leadership meeting tonight. The other assistant had concerns too. The HPGL said not to worry too much, because we will NOT be following their mandate. He sent the emails to us to gauge our reaction, and figured since neither of…"

Kerry Thompson replied to G. Douglas's discussion Unrealistic expectations on priesthood leaders. in the group LDS Men
"I have felt that way. Yes there has always been a strong encouragement for "One night a week with the missionaries. This can be delegated throughout the HP group leadership or the quorum both HP and Elders. Monthly PPIs have been in the books…"

Hyrum Higgins replied to G. Douglas's discussion Unrealistic expectations on priesthood leaders. in the group LDS Men
"Sometimes we are required to do hard things. Because something is hard doesn't mean that it isn't right to do. In the early days of the church fathers were often commanded to serve long missions in foreign lands, leaving their families for…"

"I can completely understand your frustrations.  I have been in situations where the demand seems to be too much.  At the same time I would counsel that you should look beyond the burden and try to understand the blessing.  It sounds…"

Andy Bahlmann replied to G. Douglas's discussion Unrealistic expectations on priesthood leaders. in the group LDS Men
"I'm in the bishopric of my ward. So far, we haven't received these kinds of mandates in our area (Las Vegas). On the other hand, I have been involved in asking people to do things beyond what they believe they can do. I have gone to my…"

"Honestly, I haven't heard anything like this.  Then again, I am only in a singles ward and I've never been in a presidency position other than secretary. From what little I understand, family should come first.  Prayer about the…"

Unrealistic expectations on priesthood leaders.

Hi folks. Sorry about this post, the content has been bugging me for several days. I've been reluctant to post, because to be blunt I'm more than a bit grumpy at the moment. I'm currently an assistant in the Ward HP group and over the last week or so I've been getting emails from the HP group leader & bishop advising of new initiatives from the Pacific Area Presidency regarding re-activation efforts.

G. Douglas replied to Russel G.'s discussion Keeping the Sabbath ... in the group LDS Men
"Interesting discussion. Unfortunately we are in a world where the sabbath doesn't mean much to the majority of people - even many other Christian religions no longer place as much emphasis on the sabbath. As an example the local Catholic school…"

G. Douglas replied to Russel G.'s discussion Why are you LDS? in the group LDS Men
"I grew up LDS in a small city where the active LDS population was about 20. Throughout most of my time in youth / YSA, I was the only LDS (active or not) member in town between the ages of 12 and 30. With no like-minded peers, it was very easy to…"

G. Douglas replied to Brett McKay's discussion Your Favorite Manly Hyms in the group LDS Men
"I'll add my vote for "Brightly Beams Our Fathers Mercy". Apart from the good lyrics it has an amazing 4 part arrangement that sounds awesome when you have a priesthood choir singing all parts."

G. Douglas replied to Tanner's discussion Can We Handle it Anymore? in the group LDS Men
"There has certainly been a push for a while now for members to focus more on the basics of the gospel than on various opinions, speculations etc. At the end of the day, understanding topics such as those listed above may be interesting, but…"

Shane replied to Leto Atreides II's discussion Ferguson Grand Jury Decision in the group The Great Debate
"There's a continuum of force, and cops are authorized to use one level above a perpetrators level in an assault. So if an offender is using fists, you're allowed a baton. If an offender is using a blunt I object as a weapon (intending…"

"The problem with your question is that (in this case) you're asking a police officer to judge the intent of someone who had already committed a felony to determine the severity of the threat. Brown had ample opportunity to not die. He chose to…"
